One Night Only release Say You Don’t Want It, the first single from their forthcoming second album, through Vertigo Records, on the 16th August. The album, yet to be titled, follows on the 23rd August.
The hurtling first single and album opener Say You Don’t Want It is an instantly memorable song which talks of living like stars with beautiful girls and fast cars but also the fake and materialistic side of what can also be an empty and lonely world behind pop stardom. It captures the highs and lows - how it feels to be pop’s most wanted and the darker flipside of pop success which the fans never get to see.
Their forthcoming album, recorded in Brussels and produced by Ed Buller (Suede/Pulp/White Lies) captures the headrushing excitement of how it feels to ride this rollercoaster. It’s an album of giddy, almost dizzying energy and excitement; bigger and more confident tunes than the boys making their debut could have possibly imagined, and a feeling of being catapulted into something tremendously exciting and perhaps a little troubling. It’s the story of chasing the end of the rainbow, what happens along the way and when you get there. One Night Only justifiably call the results a “quantum leap” that will take them to a whole new audience.
One Night Only released their debut album in January 2008, and it quickly went Gold, and spawned the huge hit single Just For Tonight. They amassed legions of rabid fans up and down the country from their constant touring – including a bunch of sold out headline tours, and major festival appearances at Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, T in the Park etc.
Since those heady days of breaking through, frontman George has become the face of Burberry (at the last campaign shoot, he met now good friend and video co-star Emma Watson) and is regularly glimpsed in fashion shoots and on 25ft billboards around the world.
